Students at one Kingwood elementary school will be using state-of-the-art equipment to learn about weather, thanks to a WeatherBug Weather Station donated by TriEagle Energy.

Willow Creek Elementary is the first of five Texas schools to receive a weather station that measures temperatures, wind speed and direction, rainfall, atmospheric pressure and humidity in real time.

More than 8,000 schools across the U.S. have a WeatherBug weather station used to integrate live, local weather data and technology into the classroom.

“We are excited about the opportunity to bring our own weather data right into the classroom with the new WeatherBug weather station,” said Scott Duncan, Principal, Willow Creek Elementary. “We know our students are most engaged and learn best when they can observe and interact with technology on their own terms. We will encourage all Willow Creek students to take advantage of the hands-on weather science education created by WeatherBug and show off what they have learned at our annual Science Fair in February.”

TriEagle’s plans to donate weather stations to four other Texas elementary schools as well as schools in Pennsylvania, Ohio and Connecticut.
